An Update from Alissa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I’m sure some of you are wondering where I’ve been, or why our usual posts haven’t been up on the site for this update.

Unfortunately, on Thursday, June 9th my father passed away very suddenly.

Aside from the usual shock and grief that hits when something like this happens, and helping my mom sort through all of the finances, etc. as we settle my dad’s affairs, I’ve now been tasked with running our family business.  As you can imagine, it’s pretty overwhelming at the moment as I take on a role I didn’t ask for, nor was I ready for.  But I’m doing my best to make it through each day.

However, this means something has to be put to the side at least temporarily.  And that something is this site.  So in the short term, I cannot keep up with the posts for this site in addition to the challenge and responsibility of running a company and taking care of 3 small children.  There are just not enough hours in the day.

I do hope to get back to this site, once I get into a rhythm at work and no longer have the feeling that I’m drowning in a never-ending sea of “I don’t know what the hell I’m doing”.   Hopefully, that can happen before this event is over, but if it doesn’t that has to be ok as well.

Safi will be around, and if he has the time he will post about the event itself.  I don’t even have the time right now to even play the game, let alone write about it.  I do hope to get back to it soon, as I love this site, this community, and it’s honestly my outlet to keep my sanity.  Hopefully, I will be back sooner rather than later.

I thank you for your patience during this difficult time, and I welcome your thoughts and prayers as my family tries to adjust to life without my father.

I’m Back And A Little Update…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Feels like it’s been a while since I’ve said that, two weeks to be exact.  Did you miss me? I missed you guys.

Safi did an AMAZING job filling in for me while I was away, with his busy travel/work schedule I know it wasn’t easy for him but he knocked it out of the park in my absence!  And, for the most part, you all were extremely respectful and helpful!  And for both of those things, I am extremely grateful to Safi and this amazing community!

So where have I been?  What took me away for two weeks? Contrary to popular belief…I was not in fact on vacation.  Sorry CJ Disney was, unfortunately, not where I spent the last two weeks. 

I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys for quite a while now, and it’s finally time to let the cat out of the bag….

Welcome Super Safi!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

For those of you who watched Addicts Live last week, you’ll know that we announced that Safi is now part of the Addicts team!

You may know Safi from the comments, as the creator of the Bracket Battle Challenges (you’ve all come to love) and even more popular, the writer behindt he super crazy detailed Kwik-E-Mart Farming post (free donuts anyone), as well as a host of other posts (he’s been writing guest posts for us for years now)!  He’s definitely detail orientated and totally into the stats and math behind the game!

We’re incredibly excited to have Safi join the staff more regularly and help out when he can!  So be sure to pay Safi the same respect in the comments you would any one of us!

Welcome aboard Super Safi!  We’re thrilled to have you as part of the team!

Addicts Housekeeping Note: Site Theme

I enabled the mobile theme for the site again, hopefully this helps some of you who are having issues viewing the site on your mobile device.  If you’d like to go back to the desktop version scroll to the bottom of the site and select view full site.  Hope that helps!  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note to let you know I switched the theme back to the old, original Addicts theme.  I did this in hopes that it would help with the comment issue, I don’t think it will…but if it does I’ll be thrilled.  Plus, I know a lot of you (Sandra…) were really wanting us to go back to how it originally was.  So…it’s back to how it originally was.

Fingers crossed that this works for the comments!
